Explore Even More: Teddy-Bear Hibernation

February 25, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am


 If you & your teddy-bear go into the museum today you’re in for a big surprise! We’ll craft paper bear ears so we’ll be in disguise. Together we’ll watch and listen in the cooking galley as popcorn pops and as a kettle brews black tea just like in the story “Bear Snores On”. The day will end with playtime in the tree-house exhibit where we’ll pretend to be bears waking up after a long rest. Parents and kids are encouraged to bring museum appropriate pajamas for class if so desired. Perfect for ages 3-4!

*pop-corn alternatives and water will also be available
